Who they are
The journey began almost 20 years ago when co-founders Charlie Austin and Miguel Cunat arrived in Sri Lanka and independently set up the two travel companies that changed the face of Sri Lankan tourism.
Fast forward in 2020 they plan trips to Sri Lanka for partners from all over the world, who trust TFG to help them make the most of the journey. For some, this means connecting them with interesting people along the way. For others, it means finding the most authentic and beautiful hideaways, making the trip fun and engaging for the whole family.
Like the country they are a multi-ethnic and multi-faith organisation. They want to save Sri Lanka from the spoils of mass tourism.
